Houthi rebels air video of ‘downed Morrocan jet’ in Yemen

Yemen’s dominant Houthi militia on Monday aired footage claiming to show regional tribesmen celebrating the downing of a Moroccan fighter jet that was taking part in Saudi-led coalition air strikes against them.

The Houthis’ official news channel al-Masirah said anti-aircraft guns had shot down the Moroccan F-16 fighter jet over the remote Wadi Nashour area in the northwestern province of Saada.

In its broadcast, the channel showed gun-toting tribesmen standing on a rocky hillside, pumping their fists and chanting, “Death to America!”

    Another fine F-16 gone to waste.

      They are American, of course. What muzz state could make anything like them?

        Their only ability is to destroy things and turn themselves back to the 7th century…the age of PERFECTION!
        We should stop buying their oil, then build a wall around them.

    OT: hope the back pain resolves, Arnie.

    Death to America. Do these idiots know any other chant? OK…There’s death to Israel. That two. Do these idiots have anything else to do but gather around and chant? They look like a bunch of unionists on strike.
